Bekker lined up for Future of Media and Advertising Conference

The Future of Media and Advertising conference, taking place on 30 July 2014, has a video headline interview with media magnate, Koos Bekker, speaking for the first time after stepping down as CEO of Naspers earlier this year.
The event is set to be a meeting of the minds of media owners, media buyers and the all-important marketers who make use of the various media platforms to promote and sell their products and brands. For the third year in a row, the SABC will be the headline sponsor, having supported the event since its inception.

Correct platforms

"There is no event in South Africa, where all in one day, three interdependent sectors of the media industry meet. The marketers who need insights on how to spend their budgets in the future, the strategists and media buyers who advise on how these budgets should be spent and the media owners, who hope to be providing the correct platforms to be receiving the money being spent." says Richard Lendrum, MD at Future Group - the event owners.

Keynote addresses will be presented by top media strategist Gordon Patterson and advertising commentator Andy Rice, with media commentator Jeremy Maggs as the host for this event. Delegates can also expect a 360 degree view of all six media pillars with presentations and panel discussions on radio, TV, magazines, newspapers, digital and out of home media lined up for the day.
